COMMUNITY RELATIONS WEEK
Thursday 21st September, 11.00 am – 1.00 pm:
THE WAR’S NOT OVER YET!
Seamus Farrell will explore the links between 1917/18 and the present – locally and globally. Specifically he will look at the Paris Peace Conference, 1919 after WW1, which lead to the Treaty (Agreement) of Versailles among other treaties and mandates, and ask if the history makers of then could have foreseen its multiple legacies, how might they in retrospect have acted.
Friday 22nd September, 11.00 am – 1.00 pm
IS DEMOCRACY ON THE WAY OUT?
There are leaders of Nations who are engaged in hollowing out democracy, diminishing human rights and tending towards totalitarian rule. Hard won freedoms are at risk. There are threats to global peace. There appears to be little concern and resistance. Are we indifferent to democracy on its way out, or are we committed to its recovery, revisioning and making democracy more truly democratic? The future of community relations, a common good for Northern Ireland, the future of Europe and the world will depend on the future of democracy.
